What is a Gearmotor?

Gearmotors (or geared motors) are small electric motors (AC induction, permanent magnet DC, or brushless DC) designed with an integral (non-separable) gear reducer (gearhead) attached. The end shield on the drive end of the motor is designed to provide a dual function. The side facing the motor provides the armature/rotor bearing support and a sealing provision through which the integral rotor or armature shaft pinion passes. The other side of the motor end shield provides multiple bearing supports for the gearing itself, and a sealing and fastening provision for the gearhousing. This construction offers many benefits for a user and eliminates the guesswork of sizing a motor and gear reducer on your own. Gearmotors function as torque multipliers and speed reducers, requiring less motor power to drive a given load. The gear housing design, the gearing type, gear lubrication, and the specific mode of integration all affect the gearmotor performance.
